Week 2 of Fall 2019 -- Ask any questions thread + This week in hackathons

Howdy friendo’s! Back again with a hackathon update. Let’s take a look at what’s happening this week!

Hack the North is happening up in Waterloo, Canada! So exciting. They have Jack Dorsey as a keynote speaker, and we expect it to be one of the biggest events of the year. @kevin and @jamie.liao will be there from MLH to help out, but with people like @corbinm and @patrick heading the show, I think the event’s in good hands.

Back in the states, HopHacks is going down over in Maryland. @croppers will be there to make sure the event hops and skips its way to success! Woo!

That’s all for this week – so, have any questions about hackathons, workshops, MLH, or anything else? Feel free to ask below!

Any tips on how to get a high profile, keynote speaker like Jack Dorsey?

Taggin @corbin @corbinm for that!

@christopher we typically source our speakers and judges from connections within the team :slight_smile: sometimes we’ll also do cold reach outs, though of course it’s better if you have warmer contacts.
